I’ve done a lot of work for Twister over the years with photography for the band both live and for band promo shots and I’ve also done a number of music videos for them and over the years, I’ve seen them progress through different line-up’s and increase their following of fans. So for them to headline the main stage at the O2 Academy in Newcastle is amazing, it was only the previous few years that they were headlining the small stage there, but this time it was the large main stage. So I got myself an AAA pass from the band and shot my usual behind the scenes style live images, mixed with some of the regular style images. I also snapped a few shots of Sam Gibson who was supporting the band too.
After much debating and changing about, I’ve decided to change some things around and I’ve split off my work into a few different zones and domains, just so things are kept apart. I’ve got a few new ideas in the pipeline for what I want to do in the near future and where I want to take my YouTube channels, photography and videography, so we’ll see what happens with all of that. As the site is a little sparse, I’ll just my best to re-upload some of my past work when I can, along with work I get up to on a daily basis.
This was a shoot that took a while to get sorted as all three of our spare dates couldn’t match up, but once we found a date we were all free and got it sorted out, we made some magic! We headed to The National Glass Centre in Sunderland to shoot and used both the rooftop and the interior for our shoots. We shot this set for a general vintage styled theme to be used on Facebook and Instagram and we shot another set inside which was mainly tattoo based to be featured in TE Magazine. Check out the other set here. Here’s the usual behind the scenes image too:
I was browsing through Facebook and stumbled across some images that a good friend had taken of Shannon (It was Chris Harrison) and I knew that I had to book in a shoot with her, as she had a fantastic look. So, I dropped her a message and said we should work on something together and we sorted out a date and a location and did that. He jumped into the skate park for some location off-camera lighting work and then put the lights away and headed into the arcades for some natural lighting work, I do much favour the arcade images from this set! Here’s the usual behind the scenes image from the shoot (With some little helpers too):
Myself and Ian headed to Ripon as part of KIS Studio and we had an amazing dress from My Big Day Bridal to photograph. We did a few shots earlier at Brimham Rocks, but we wanted something a little bit different from where we were shooting, so headed to a park in Ripon to grab these shots. Check out some of the images with some behind the scenes shots and the usual behind the scenes selfie. Here’s the behind the scenes shots:
Myself and Ian from KIS Studio headed to East Durham Fitness for the EDFit same sex competition and provided coverage on the day of the various competitors on the day taking part in the event. We also got some crowd shots and other various shots for EDF to use on their Facebook page and on their web site etc. Here’s a selection of images I took during the day.
I had North Road into the studio for some new band promo shots, so we made use of the black room, the grey wall and brought out the red backdrop so we could get something a little different for them. We got some shots with and without instruments and we brought in some props in the shape of a TLR camera and of course we had to get some photos with the ring light. Here’s the usual behind the scenes image:
